    A quick perusal of the Internet will show multitudes of websites with people talking about finding Noah's Ark or seeing it or whatever. (My nature is to be skeptical, especially of anything on the internet) But what do PB'ers think...do you think anyone in recent history has actually seen or found Noah's Ark? Why or why not?

    It will never be found for one simple reason, it was cannibalized by the Noah family for housing, cooking, heat, etc. All of the wood around them would be hopelessly waterlogged or actively turning into coal and natural gas. They needed something to fuel their new civilization.

    Don't know that I've ever seen an ADHD avatar before, Andy.

    Interesting speculation- though wouldn't the language of the text indicate breaking the ark up wasn't a matter of necessity?

    It could have been broken up though. Perhaps that's where he got some of the wood to offer sacrifices. The ark wasn't ever going to be used again, and it would be efficient use of materials.

    This is pure speculation and is adding to the text. I guess this has already been pointed out.

    I don't think anyone can answer the questions: "Has it been found?" or "Will it be found?"

    On top of this, it doesn't really matter.


    Also, the avatar is a pentecostal during worship...right?

    I always pictured the Ark as Clyde-built (as they say in Scotland) if ever anything was. In other words, it would be a lot more bother breaking it up than just picking up broken wood from the now dry earth.

    Even if they found the ark how would they ever know it? A pile of wood on top of a mountain is a pile of wood on top of a mountain. It doesn't seem to important to God to "prove" himself to mondern man by providentially revealing where it is. It is like "wow now that we humans have discovered the ark we now have a good reason to believe it", to that I would say "no when God tells me through special revelation that the ark existed I have the best reason possible to believe it".

    Now it is quite reasonable for christian scientists to analyze these things and search for archeological evidence of these things for the right reasons. But we must always have the right perspective on "proof" and "evidence" first.

    Personally, I think someone from the future went back in time and stole it to add to their museum collection.
